Pete Rose will be the subject of an ESPN movie beginning production this spring.
Hustle, will premiere on Sept. 25, ESPN executive vice president Mark Shapiro announced Tuesday.
The two-hour movie will focus on events in Rose's life and baseball career in the mid- to late 1980s, including the lifetime ban he agreed to
